Family Fun Day coming to Athens-Clarke County Library

The Friends of Athens-Clarke County Library will host the library’s annual Family Fun Day on Saturday, June 1, from 10 AM to 1 PM, to celebrate the beginning of summer and kickoff Summer Reading!

Come to the library for a free morning of fun for all ages! Family Fun Day will include lots of free activities presented by local Athens businesses and organizations, plus a Wildlife Critters Petting Zoo and puppet show performances by Lee Bryan “That Puppet Guy.”

Activities include: STEM fun with UGA Neuroscience Graduate Student Association, Wildlife Critters Petting Zoo, Sandy Creek Nature Center wildlife encounters, Athens Forest Kindergarten, Athens-Clarke County Touch-A-Truck, and costumed characters from Enchanted Events. The Brella Art Truck and Kona Ice will also be on hand!

Lee Bryan “That Puppet Guy” will perform a puppet show at 10:30 AM, 11:00 AM, 12:00 PM and 12:30 PM. There will be a library storytime at 11:30 AM as well.

Families can also enjoy crafts, a photo booth, temporary tattoos, free tote bags, and free popcorn. Make friendship bracelets in the Teen Department, and tour the Heritage Room on the second floor to learn about local history and genealogy resources.

In addition to all the great activities, attendees of Family Fun Day will be able to sign up for Summer Reading. This year’s theme is “Adventure Begins at Your Library!” No matter what your age, you can participate in Summer Reading! Reading logs and more information will be available throughout the day.
